The preview launch of the new Europeana API has just happened. The API is based on Europeana's new metadata schema, the Europeana Data Model.

Europe is the first touristic destination in the world: in 2010, it was visited by almost half billion tourists. Cultural tourism plays a significant attraction role, and is estimated to account for around 40% of all European tourism.
Information and communication technologies have allowed the development of new services in the cultural tourism field, shifting from traditional to new ways of approaching cultural resources: digital tourism is offering great opportunities to renew and enrich the visitors’ experiences. Adapting to technologies and uses, it tends to become more and more connected to social media, geolocated, and in mobility. In the same time, it contributes to enhance cultural heritage attractiveness, sustainability and quality, and favours its accessibility.
Organized by Michael Culture Association, dedicated to cultural heritage valorization, this workshop, IN ENGLISH, aims at sharing best practices examples and innovative projects on digital tourism in Europe.
Audience: Professionals from the Cultural heritage and tourism fields, new technologies and innovative services.
The project Digitising Contemporary Art (DCA) is contributing significally to the presentation of contemporary art available at Europeana, the single access point to Europe's cultural heritage. Additionally to the artworks and contextual documents, the project is delivering practical guidelines on best practices in the field of digitisation of artworks.
Recently the project yielded a number of expert documents for publication. Those publications include several workshops around the topic of metadata and two guidelines on best practices within metadata implementation and long-term preservation. All publications are now available for downloading on the project website.
